Burning the Books

When: Saturday 2nd November, 17:30 Postponed until March 2014
Where: Minerva Works, 158, Fazeley Street, Digbeth, B5 5RS

Burning the Books is a project by artist Alinah Azadeh in collaboration with debtors and creditors everywhere. It offers a moment to reflect on and engage in a dialogue about debt other than the one you may think is on offer. It questions the relationship between measurable, financial debt and other forms such as emotional, psychic, ecological and social debt.

The third volume of Burning the Books will take place in Birmingham in partnership with Fierce Festival, and will meet its fiery end on Saturday November at dusk, followed by a celebration ‘wake’.

Volume III is open for Digbeth residents to submit debt contributions, which will be transcribed into The Book of Debts by Alinah as she receives them, up until 3pm on Saturday 2nd November.
